Allnatt Diamond – a 101.29ct fancy vivid yellow

Allnatt Diamond – a 101.29ct fancy vivid yellow

The Allnatt DiamondThe Allnatt Diamond measures 101.29 carat with a cushion cut, rated in color as Fancy Vivid Yellow by the Gemological Institute of America.

This diamond is named after one of its holders, Major Alfred Ernest Allnatt, a soldier, sportsman, art patron and benefactor. While it is not known precisely where the Allnatt originated, many experts believe that it was probably found in what is now known as the De Beers Premier Diamond Mine.

The Allnatt’s origins are unknown prior to Major Allnatt’s purchasing of the diamond in the early 1950s. After purchasing the diamond, he commissioned Cartier to make a setting for it. The final setting was a platinum flower with five petals, a stem and two leaves, all set with diamonds.

The Allnatt was resold at auction in May 1996 by Christie’s in Geneva for $3,043,496. At the time of its sale the Allnatt was 102.07 carat and was graded Fancy Intense Yellow.

After being sold to the SIBA Corporation, the diamond was re-cut to its current weight and the intensity was upgraded as a result.
